This family run hostel is in a beautiful location on the hillside overlooking Flores.
It is literally a 2 min water taxi ride across the lake to San Miguel and this really adds to your stay. The cost is practically nothing - about 25 cents. Getting the boat over and back to Flores for dinner is just amazing.
Neil meets you in Flores when you arrive and showes you to the hostel. He is a really interesting guy from Belize, his wife is from Guatemala and it was great to hear about the history and politics in the region.
As hosts they could not be better, organising tickets for tours and onward journeys.
The cabanas are stunning - set back from the house they are spacious and spotlessly clean with hot and cold showers. We woke one morning to a beautiful white horse grazing in the lush gardens. I swear it was so idyllic that in my mind it is still a unicorn.
The fact that they had the cutest 2 month old chihuahua only added to the incredible stay!!!
Could not recommend enough.
